Teresa Del Carmen's story

Teresa lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe. She is 39 years old and has two school-aged children. Her husband is an independent construction worker and helps with household expenses. Sra. Teresa is a farmer growing pineapples and citrus fruits which she sells in the market. She is seeking a loan to buy supplies for her fields such as fertilizer and other necessities so the harvest will be a good one. Then her income will increase and the standard of living for herself and her family will improve.
